This is the third in a four part series highlighting Supreme Court online tools. Each segment of this series will introduce a different online tool relating to the Supreme Court.
The third tool that will be highlighted is Oyez.org. This tool is a website that monitors, records, and keeps track of recent Supreme Court cases, the Supreme Court Justices, and current news regarding the Supreme Court. This tool can be conveniently accessed here.
Below is what the homepage looks like.
There are four navigation options from the homepage. The first, “Cases” will take you to current Supreme Court cases during the present and past terms.
You can also view cases by issue instead of term, and the term can be changed. Oyez, provides access for cases back to 1789.
Next, you can navigate to “Justices”. Here you can read about each Justice that has ever served on the Supreme Court.
The “Tour” feature allows you to take a virtual tour of the Supreme Court.
Finally, clicking “News” will navigate you to “ISCOTUS Now” a blog-news site managed and maintained by IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law.
Check out Oyez.org to read Supreme Court cases old and new, find out all the Supreme Court Justices since the court’s inception, take a tour of the Supreme Court without spending a dime and finally learn about what’s happening besides cases in the world of the Supreme Court!
